Poem By 13 Year Old Girl Raped By Mom's Boyfriend

Hi, I'm Michelle (it's not my real name; I don't feel safe using it). I am 13 and my mom has a boyfriend, my future step-dad. Everything was great and then he started hurting me sexually a year ago. I don't know why I posted this, I guess so I wouldn't feel so alone. Anyway.........

I understand your pain as the same thing has happened to me. I am 13, and my step father started to sexually assault me at the age of 11. It carried on for a couple years as I was too scared...

He comes into my bedroom in the middle of the night
    I close my eyes while my heart beats in fright
     I feel his hand come tightly over my mouth
     I want to scream but I cannot shout
     He yanks off my clothes as if they're paper
   And when he begins I think to myself it's time to meet your maker
   It seems like eternity even though it was a mere hour
  I race to the bathroom and try to wash away the pain in the shower

  The next morning he packs up his bag to catch his train
   But before he leaves he comes back into my bedroom and does it again
       I sit there feeling alone and ashamed
      Knowing there's no one else to blame
       I know he will be back in a week
   And to him he must feel like he is on a winning streak

   My mom doesn't notice what he has done she doesn't even fret
   And when she asks if it's okay if she marries him I beg her, Not Yet.

I feel your pain, and it is hard to speak up. I was 6 when it started happening to me every week until I was 14. I'm now 30, and I'm still struggling.

I understand your pain as the same thing has happened to me. I am 13, and my step father started to sexually assault me at the age of 11. It carried on for a couple years as I was too scared to speak, but one day my mother read my diary and found out. I'm now currently getting help. I have an amazing, helpful boyfriend who stays on the phone with me through the night just to make sure I'm okay. You're never alone and never going to be alone. I understand and it's all going to stop and it will all be okay at someone point.

I was raped too. Thing is I now have a wonderful boyfriend but am thinking of breaking up with him. My rapist was my ex-boyfriend and every time I talk to John (my boyfriend) I feel scared and think it will happen again. This is the first time I told anyone.

Please, please tell someone, please. Please, you're so young and so innocent. It's only his fault to blame. Never think it is yours to blame.

I'm so saddened by this. I really hope that you tell your mum what's happening because you're so young and this man has taken away your innocence. I want to just hug you and tell you its all okay but I know its not and I know you will never feel the same again. I don't and its only happened to me once. Please tell someone.

I'm so sorry for all that has happened. This is strange but, I just woke up from a dream where something terrible, like this, was going to happen. In the dream nobody knew what was going on, I felt so isolated and alone. Until towards the end when I ran off and phoned the police, told people, and called for help. Then things started to look better for me. I know it is just a dream but I personally doubt the fact that it was a mere coincidence for me to wake up to this poem in my email. I really hope that things are starting to look better for you. I do not know who you are but you brought tears to my eyes.
I believe that truth and justice always comes through, even in the most harshest and cruel of times. Just as the sun will always rise, each morning, bringing light to a new day. Ending the darkness of the night. Guiding those who were lost in the darkness, and showering life upon the land.
